DAS - also known as distributed antenna systems - has been becoming more and more ingrained in infrastructure design for buildings across any market segment. Data demands have emerged from both customers and clients visiting building premises, but more often these needs for wireless internet access have been coming from inside organizations themselves. While the need for wireless access inside buildings won't be going down any time soon, CommScope's recent innovations in combining radio frequency signals with their traditional DAS systems, has emerged as an in-building wireless game changer.
“What once was a niche market—using distributed antenna systems to bring wireless coverage into hard-to-reach areas—has become a primary focus for most network operators and increasingly many enterprise IT organizations,” said Matt Melester, senior vice president and general manager, Distributed Coverage and Capacity Solutions, CommScope. “When you consider that upwards of 80 percent of mobile data traffic is indoors, and that businesses continue to adopt Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies, it is little wonder why.”
It is predicted that one billion employee-owned smartphones and tablets will be in use in the enterprise by 2018. Yet only about two percent of the 30 billion square meters of worldwide commercial real estate is covered by an in-building mobile wireless system. The ION-E unifies licensed wireless, power and Gigabit Ethernet for WiFi onto one simplified, flexible and scalable platform. It is future-ready, supporting multiple operators with the air-interface technologies and frequency bands in use today and tomorrow.
